We are excited to announce the launch of the new Friends of Ngong Road Sponsor Portal: https://ngongroad.org/sponsor/
Purpose: The new portal is designed to foster a deeper understanding of Friends of Ngong Road sponsors of the children they sponsor and to form a stronger relationship between sponsors and students. The portal includes a photo gallery, school marks, child assessments, renewal information, and a link to write the sponsored child.
Future Enhancements: As this is version 1.0, sponsors can expect to see updates and improvements in the coming months. In upcoming versions we plan to include:
- Annual student assessments are delivered electronically instead of via post
- Donation and sponsorship payment history (an easy way to check on giving history and print receipts for tax purposes)
- Monthly giving subscription management (ability to update credit cards, pay for multiple children, etc.)
- Photo library and tagging system (we have a wealth of amazing photographs–too many for our current system to handle–an upgrade is needed to make these photos available to sponsors)**
- Communication tools and tracking (a history of all written communications between sponsors and children and the ability to correspond more efficiently that supports photo/video, etc.)**
**We are currently seeking funding for these projects. If you are interested in underwriting one of these enhancements, please contact Lacey Kraft at Lacey@ngongroad.org.
Sponsors: To log in for the first time you will need to create an account. Here’s how:
- Start by visiting ngongroad.org/sponsor/

- Enter your email address (the one you use to communicate with Friends of Ngong Road).
- Check your email inbox. You will receive an email with a link that allows you to create a password. Click it.
